In My Mind's Eye I will never forget ....

 Our daughter's First Real Christmas

Technically this is her 2nd Christmas; however, since she was only 4 months
old on her first Christmas we call this her First Real Christmas.
December 25 1972.
This picture is engraved in my mind forever. As you can see by this picture,
she was very surprised. Truly Christmas through the eyes of a child.
The next picture is what she was looking at that had her so excited
Note we had the Christmas Tree in her playpen to keep the inquisitive
hands of a 16 month old safe.
As always I thank you for stopping by to see me today.


  1. Wow, she really scored some good stuff!

  6. A really beautiful memory! Love the tree in the play pen. Smart idea.

  7. That picture would be engraved in my mind forever, too! Adorable! Dy-ing at the tree in the playpen... very innovative! Sweet Christmas post, Cecilia!

  8. the thing i like the most about what is under the tree is that they are all manual play things, ride and push, build with blocks, she looks totally delighted and delightful. super idea to contain the tree.

  9. Ha! Ha! A surprise to her for sure! Christmas is so fun with toddlers (especially when you can send them back to their parents when they get cranky)!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  10. What wonderful memories! I love the idea of putting the tree in a playpen!
